Day 240 - Oh My Aching Feet
We went to the Oregon State Fair for awhile today.
I was most intrigued by the draft horse competition. We wandered over to the stalls after they were done. These horses are so majestic, weighing in at a mere 2000 lbs.
I watched this guy from the back for quite a while, kind of a prissy boy, he rested one foot and then he rested the other.
His trainer walked by and we chatted for a moment. He said he was 12 years old, a good age for a draft horse, but he would be retiring after this competition. He said this big guy was getting lazy.
